Nah, you're not a hypocrite. Hypocrisy is saying one thing and doing another. A creator might provide a guiding hand, but it's the characters who really tell the story (the say & the do).
Besides, as Kristofori said... any love story requires a little sap. :)
On another note: LOVE your art style. It's a wonderful mix of everything... precise, but flowing... elegant, but casual... a fantastic eye for detail, but still keeping it simple. The warmest, most inviting illustration I've seen in a long, long time.
